So this past weekend I went to Bill's 2'fer Malifaux tournaments.
First up Single Elim 35 stone competative primer
I got matched up with Mike round 1. Not ideal since I was more looking to meet him in the Finals, but alas sometimes things fall that way.
I pulled Destroy the Evidence and he Pulled Claim Jump. We had schemes and such, but they didn't really come into play.
My List - Marcus, Jackalope, Cerberus, Rattler, Shikome, Waldegiest, Moleman
Mike's List - Pandora, Primordal Magic, 2 Lilu, 2 Lilitum, Insideous Madness
Here are the Highlights. Marcus howled up and ran into pandora, but was unable to kill her. The 4 twins went next and killed off Marcus. I took a gamble and it didn't pay off. I should have been more conservative with him, that was a pretty big mistake. It also didnt help that the highest card I drew in 3 turns was an 8. So I lost and was eliminated. Mike ended up winning the event with Pandora.
Loser Tournament - or maybe noobie tournament. what ever. I wasnt going to join in, but there was an odd number of people in the tournament so I decided to play. I didn't want to play my stuff in a tournament for Noobies so I took Lucius. I have only ever faced Lucius 1 time before this tourney so I figured I counted as a noob with him.
Round 1 vs Vickis
I stumbled through round 1 a bit, but things went pretty well for me. The Guard Captain was a star and killed off a fewI ended up having to kill off 3 Vicki's as Jay spawned an extra. Turn 6 was a close one, had he won init, there is a good chance Jay would have won the whole game. I won though and killed off the Gun Vicki before she could activate giving me an 8-0 win.
Round 2 vs Lilith
This was a tough game. I pulled Shared Slaughter against a Nephlim list. We basically beat the crap out of each other and Ended up with Lilith and a single Guardsman alive at the end. He won the game 6-2
Round 3 vs Colette
I basically whomped Colette into Dust. Her best moves came when she used dissapearing act like 10 times. She wasn't killing my dudes, but she was removing them before they could hit her. Eventually after killing her like 15 times she stayed dead. I won this one 8-3 maybe it was 3, can't remember.
So I 2nd. Bryan who took the Lilith list took 1st, but it was a DAMN close event. I had more total VP's by 1. He had more Tournament points by 1. Our differential was in my favor by like 2 points. It was pretty cool to be that close.
I also played 3 games this past Tuesday. HIGHLIGHTS!!!!!!
Game 1 - McMourning vs Lady J.
I sent a ton of crap after Lady J, but good lord she wouldn't die. She riposted like 4 guys dead. and killed 2 Flesh Golems. In the end I was able to keep Lady J paralyzed for 2 full turns and keep her off the objectives. It was still a very close game, but I won 8-6
Game 2 - Seamus vs Lady J
This was my first time facing Brian so I was excited about it. The Ortegas killed the crap out of my crew, Seamus had to resummon the Belles a few times. The game was close until Seamus took a focused shot at Perdita. I cheated and stoned the flip into a 30. I cheated in the red joker for damage and killed her off. This game went REALLY long into turn 8 and all that, but I eventually pulled out a 6-2 win.
Game 3 - Nico vs La Croix
Nico did some crazy damage and killed off quite a few Gremlins, but eventually fell to the numerous attacks the Gremlins put into him. I had reconoiter so my Gun Slinger and a Crookedman hid from the Gremlins and held their board corners. Nico summoned a Flesh Golem before he died and it killed off the last few Gremlins on the board. A nice and close game overall, but I took it 6-2.
